Founded in 1828 by James McGill, a rich Scottish fur trader, McGill University is one of Canada’s most prestigious learning institutions, with 37,000 students. The university’s medical and engineering faculties have a fine reputation and many campus buildings are showcases of Victorian architecture. The campus, at the foot of Mont-Royal, is rather nice for a stroll around and also incorporates the Musée Redpath.
